The Revealed by Jessica Hickman {Summer Reading Challenge Review}

Hi everyone!!! Happy Friday!! Woooo!! I've been looking forward to this day since 5:45 am on Monday. For those of you that don't know, I started a new job this week, and its been a crazy, hectic, but somewhat fun week. I'm sorry I haven't been posting on here lately, but everything will go back to normal on here next week. :) But now I give you  a book review. Also don't forget to enter the giveaway I'm co-hosting for a chance to win money for your favorite charity.

Title : The Revealed
Author:  Jessica Hickam
Publisher: Spark Press
Release Date: June 17th, 2014
Summary from GoodReads:

Lily Atwood lives in what used to be called Washington, D.C. Her father is one of the most powerful men in the world, having been a vital part of rebuilding and reuniting humanity after the war that killed over five billion people. Now he’s running to be one of its leaders.

But in the rediscovered peace on Earth, a new enemy has risen. They call themselves the Revealed – a powerful underground organization that has been kidnapping 18 year olds across the globe without reservation. No one knows why they are kidnapping these teens, but it’s clear something is different about these people. They can set fires with a snap of their fingers and create a wind strong enough to barrel over a tree with a flick of their wrist. No one has been able to stop them, and they have targeted Lily as their next victim.

But Lily has waited too long to break free from her father’s shadow to let some rebel organization just ruin everything. Not without a fight

My Take:
Don't you just love the summary?! When I read the summary I got so excited to read it. Although I'm not completely done with it, I'm loving it right now. 

I'm a huge dystopian reader. I like a book to take me to those dystopian worlds, where it seems to be so far away from the world we live in. And this one is no exception. 

A couple of reviewers on GoodReads have mentioned that it has a bit of X-men feel to it. And I must agree!! So if you love dystopias, mutants/x-men I think you will like this book. :) 

Any body read this book?? What do you think?
